精彩对白

Celine: My parents never really spoke of the possibility ­of my falling in love or getting married or having children. Even as a little girl, they wanted me to think as a future career as a, you know, ­interior designer or lawyer or something like that. I'd say to my dad, l want to be a writer. And he'd say, Journalist. I'd say I wanted to have a refuge for stray cats. He'd say, veterinarian. I'd say I wanted to be an actress. He'd say, TV newscaster. It was this constant conversion of my fanciful ambition into these ­practical moneymaking ventures.

Jesse: I had a good bullshit detector when I was a kid. I always knew when they were lying to me. By high school, I was dead set ­on listening to what everybody thought I should do with my life ­and doing the opposite. Nobody was ever mean about it. I just could never get very excited about other people's ambitions for my life.

Celine: But you know what? If your parents never ­fully contradict you about anything and are nice and supportive.

Jesse: Right.

Celine: It makes it even harder to officially complain. Even when they're wrong, it's this passive-aggressive shit. You know what I mean? I hate it. I really hate it

Jesse: Well, you know, despite all that kind of bullshit that comes along with it, I remember childhood as ­this magical time. I do. I remember when my mother first told me about death. My great-grandmother had died, and my family had visited them in Florida. I was about 3, 3 1/2 years old. Anyway, I was in the back yard playing­ and my sister had just taught me how to take the garden hose, ­and do it in such a way that ­it sprayed into the sun and would make a rainbow. And so I was doing that and through the mist, I could see my grandmother. And she was just standing there, smiling at me. And I held it there for a long time, and I looked at her. And then finally, I let go of the nozzle, you know? And then I dropped the hose and she disappeared. And so I run back inside and tell my parents. And they sit me down and give me this big rap on how ­when people die, you never see them again, and how I'd imagined it. But I knew what I'd seen. I was glad I saw that. I've never seen anything like that since. But I don't know. It just kind of let me know how ambiguous everything was. Even death.

Celine: You're lucky you can have this attitude toward death. I think I'm afraid of death 24 hours a day. I swear. I mean, that's why I'm in a train right now. I could've flown to Paris, but I'm scared.

Jesse: Oh, come on.

Celine: I can't help it. I know the statistics say, Na, na, na, it's safer. Whatever. When I'm in a plane, I can see the explosion. I can see me falling through the clouds. And I'm so scared of those few seconds of consciousness ­before you die. When you know you're gonna die. I can't stop thinking that way. It's exhausting.

Jesse: Yeah, I bet.

Celine: Really exhausting. I think this is Vienna.

Jesse: Yeah.

Celine: You get off here, no?

Jesse: Yeah, what a drag. I wish I'd met you earlier. I really like talking to you.

Celine: Yeah, me too. It was really nice of you too.
